He joins the firm from multi-asset hedge fund Nuvest Capital where he was a fixed income portfolio manager.

Fleming will report to John McNeill, investment manager, and work closely with Colin Findlayson who co-manages the Kames Absolute Return Bond Fund.

The Dublin-domiciled Oeic has around £68.9m under management and it invests in global debt in any currency, and in ratings ranging from AAA government bonds to high yield and emerging market bonds.

It currently has 81% of assets committed to UK debt, and UK Treasury gilts are its top holding. The fund’s performance over the past 12 months is shown in the graph below.


Last week the firm announced Scott Jamieson had been made lead manager on the Kames Inflation Linked Fund following the appointment of previous head Stephen Jones as chief investment officer.
